Held Tempest Over Pants - Black / Fluorescent Yellow
Customer Product Reviews
No fuss waterproof trousers
I wanted non-fancy, no pads, no lining, easy on, not too baggy, lightweight, pack up small waterproof trousers to throw in my bag to go over aramid jeans if it rains. These are all of that. long boot zips, fold up fairly small, bit of hi-viz, 2xl seem good for 36" waist and long legs, not tried xl but think they may have been too snug
What to wear (waterwear)
I wanted a matching 2 piece motorcycling over suit and had already decided on the Held product range from various reviews and recommendations. The only difference was in the sizes. If it was for casual/hiking wear then I'm sure normal clothes sizes would apply. However, for a 36" waist and 29" leg it needed the 2XL for over my leathers. ( too long really). Excellent quality also matches the Held wet tour jacket, and for support from SBS returns dept. Well recommended company and product range. Performance? Still dry I'm afraid.
I needed waterproof trousers to wear over reinforced jeans when riding, and ordinary clothes when dogwalking. I did consider the Oxford ones, but sizing seems to be an issue. I've got a 30 in waist and 34 leg and the medium-size Tempests are perfect. So far, they have been waterproof, and the hi-viz and reflective strips are a bonus walking the dogs along narrow unlit lanes.
Great Waterproof Trousers
Just bought these and they will be great for those rainy days in the summer when you need something to cover your trousers. The High Zippers make it easier to get them on with your boots and the reflective side panels not only adds safety, but also a smart look.
Great waterproof trousers
Bought these with the Held Mistral II Jacket to fit over my RST suit. Fits perfectly and kept the rain out whilst on a recent trip to Ireland. Generous fit, good quality zips and very comfortable. Highly recommended.
The over pants waterproofs I found to be of great quality and value for money the only problem is they only come as 1 length and only being 4ft 10 had to alter them a lot. Could do with pocket holes being that they are over pants.
Great quality and fit
Am fortunate to live near Sportsbikeshop so could go and try different trousers. These fit superbly over my leathers and are easy to get on and off due to long zips. Also good high visibility gear. Have not worn yet in the wet but if they are as good as my other Held gear I will have no complaints.
Practical and comfortable
These do exactly what you would expect, keep you dry and make sure you are seen! They are thin so don't offer much warmth, and so are better suited when conditions are warmer. Elasticated waist and ankles mean they are comfortable and easy to put on and take off. Could do with a pocket though!
Just got back from a trip to Europe where the weather was very British summer. Despite the monsoon the Tempest pants kept me dry although got clammy in the humidity. Fit is big or I might have short legs. Recommend this product to all types of riders, even the Gendarmes thought they looked good!
